Why I Hate/Love DC

I Hate: that The Real World is coming, that they will be in Dupont near where I work. That photograph? The house.
I Love: that the Black Cat and Wonderland Ballroom have let us know they definitely won't be Real World-friendly.

I Hate: Capitol Hill interns, with their red badges of shame. As a DC native (yes, I've been an intern, but I'm aware of my limitations), I cringe at the idiotic things visitors say and do - but capitol hill interns also believe that they are all-knowing and their bosses are all-powerful, making them so much worse than your run-of-the-mill tourist.
I Love: Spotted: DC Summer Interns, a blog about all the hilariously stupid things DC summer interns say and do. Today's best post is about a presumptuous intern who walked into Starbucks and thought he could get coffee for his whole office without paying.

I Hate: that Phoenix's concert at the Rock & Roll Hotel last night was sold out.
I Love: Phoenix.

I Hate: that the Metro was so seriously delayed today, due to yesterday's tragedy; and that no matter what happens, nothing ever seems to get properly fixed. Anyone remember last summer's accidents? Or when a train derailed?
I Love: that people were generally pretty good-humored about the endless delays. Also, Adrian Fenty.
